A few more points;

Their is plenty of material basketball related to write about.

a) A wealth of history - If I didn't have a family and a job, I would be recapping old NBA seasons, not only for my own entertainment but for raptorland. Recap old seasons or old games. History is awesome.
b) The WNBA which is pretty fucking good. It's not like the inaugural season where their were 2 good players on each team and 10 others who might or might not make an open layup.
c) Summer leagues.....hobbies....players getting fat....
d) Europe


Also;

My shit get's ripped off all the time. Like calling Bargnani, "Bargs". He never would have had that nickname had I not called him that way back when.

I think we should come up with a new name for Bargnani any way. I'll bet most people would prefer to call him by my submission anyway.....'Nani

Forgot about this for a while.

At #27 they have Rafer Alston.

Quote:
Rafer Alston’s Raptors résumé:
-First player to appear on SLAM’s Streetball issue
-Raptors gave “Skip 2 My Lou” his first legit NBA chance
-In return, he gave Sam Mitchell plenty of headaches
-Joins Mo Pete on the list of former Raptors to have been caught on camera giving opponents a “love slap”
Quote:
While he wasn’t particularly successful in Toronto, he was certainly memorable. As one of the biggest faces of streetball in the NBA, Rafer will always have a special place in NBA history and in Raptors lore. Not all legacies are golden. After making it for 11 years in the league — a success by anyone’s standards — he left the league as quietly as he had entered. Rafer made it to the grandest stage only to discover that his game was meant to shine on the streets. His legend forever changed by his decision to go pro, one wonders what would have been had the Raptors not given him that chance.

#26- Walt Williams

Quote:
Walt Williams’ Raptors résumé:
-Second in scoring (16.7 PPG) on 1996-97 Raptors
-First in three point shooting accuracy (.400 3P%) on 1996-97 Raptors
-One of seven Raptors in franchise history to average at least 15 points and five rebounds per game in a season (minimum 50 games)
Quote:
The Wizard remained fairly productive when he was on the court, but he became increasingly plagued by injuries over the following years and he retired from the NBA at a young 32 years of age. He certainly never lost that smooth stroke — in the six seasons after his full Raptors season, he never shot lower than 36.5 percent from deep and once made an impressive 43.8 percent of his shots beyond the arc.

While he had a nice NBA career, you could make the case that Williams didn’t live up to some people’s expectations. He was a highly touted prospect when he was drafted seventh overall in the 1992 draft (after Tom Gugliotta and right before Todd Day) after he averaged 26.8 points per game as a senior at Maryland. When Pat Riley acquired Williams for the Heat in ‘96, Riley said that he had once thought Williams had the tools to be “a 6′8″ Magic Johnson”. That seems like a bit much, but he was actually a pretty damn good athlete and leaper before his body started to break down.
